System user creation

I am trying to create a system user for a program to use.
I haven't found any specific instructions for doing this in the FreeBSD
or Absolute FreeBSD.
The program exits with an error saying it can't create/write to a pid
I believe it is the way I used adduser to create it and I don't know
I did wrong. I assigned it the class bin and disabled the password and
assigned none as the home dir.
To remove mystery it is MySQL I am trying to get running.
This is the error file entry:
starting server errors:
060417 17:38:49 [ERROR] /usr/local/mysql/libexec/mysqld: Can't
create/write to file '/usr/local/mysql/var/AMD64-939.<domain>.pid'
060417 17:38:49 [ERROR] Can't start server: can't create PID file:
060417 17:38:49 mysqld ended
Thanks in advance;
